  1. Hi, and thanks so much for answering in advance. Asking for a good friend and her husband. The question is according to tax law Disability Pensions, military and government disability pensions, retroactive VA determination. What is a VA determination letter granting retroactive benefits? What does that letter look like? We were asked by the IRS to provide a copy of this letter ,after we admended our taxes, that we don't remember seeing, Also, WE THINK THAT SINCE WE ARE DISABLED OUR RETIREMENT SHOULD NOT BE TAXED. we are both 100% as well. Please help... Receiving both Pension and VA disability..thanks
  2. I submitted my claim to the VA in September 2015 and the VA increased my original rating effective August of 2016. The amount of retroactive pay due based on the dates described has not been received. In April of 2018 after contacting the USCG PPC (RAS) office (by phone) I was informed (by email) that the Audit Error Worksheet (AEW) was completed and sent to the VA Central Office on April 10, 2017 and was told that the VA Central Office is working on the files we sent them in February 2017. The email I received described the following AEW process. "The process works like this: PPC (RAS) automatically sends your Audit Error Worksheet (AEW) to the VA and then the VA also conducts an audit to ensure each agency (Coast Guard and VA) is paying you the correct amount. Once PPC (RAS) has processed your AEW, we will send you a letter notifying you that your AEW was completed and sent to the VA. All AEWs are sent monthly to the VA Central Office for upload to Veterans Benefit Management System (VBMS). The VA Central Office has one person that reviews and uploads all Coast Guard retiree AEWs into the VBMS system. Each file can contain up to 600 AEWs. Then the VA Regional Offices (VARO) are notified that they have new cases to process. Currently the VA Central Office is working on uploading February 2017 AEWs. (As described in the email I received on April 5, 2018.) If you contact the VA asking if they have your AEW that was completed after February 2017 they will tell you they do not have your AEW and to call the Coast Guard. Be advised the VA does have your AEW however, it has not been uploaded in their system yet so the VARO's can't see it. The Coast Guard and the VA are currently working on improving the AEW process from a manual to an electronic process. However, it will take time to get this initiative implemented between the two agencies and will take time to get the backlog caught up. Additionally, be advised that PPC (RAS) does not mail/email/fax a retirees' AEW or provide dollar amounts to a retiree. Also, we do not send AEWs to a VARO office on behalf of a retiree. This is due to the fact that PPC (RAS) does not want to give the retiree incorrect information since the VA has not yet completed their review of your AEW to ensure it is correct." My question is since the USCG (apparently) verified that the AEW (however, it has not been uploaded in their system yet so the VARO's can't see it) it created regarding my VA Claim is withIN an office within the DVA but That I cannot contact the DVA to ask if they have my AEW that was completed after February 2017 and that I will be told that they do not have my AEW and to call the Coast Guard. Is this the (Round Robin) standard that currently exists? In September of 2015, it will be three years since I applied for my increased disability rating and close to two years since I received the described monetary increase, could someone please let me know that I am not the only one this is happening to.

  3. back in 2011 I filed for a plethora of disabilities that i received during my time in the air force as a load master. I was given an 80% rating. One of the claims was for depression an ptsd. However, I missed that c&p appt (i forget everything) and i obviously was not given a rating. However, I was sent a letter that says: "You were denied service connection for depression/anxiety/stress because you did not report for the scheduled exam in order to determine if the current disability began on active duty and to obtain sufficient information for evaluation of the disability. Although there is a record of treatment in service for anxiety/depression/stress, no permanent residual or chronic subject to service connection is shown by the service medical records or demonstrated by evidence following the service." Now this was sent to me in 2011. Since then ive received a ton of treatment but ive also have had some unfortunate events happen as a result of the depression, anxiety, anger etc (jail, a stint at the mental health clinic, even a broken hand twice on two separate occasions on 2 separate faces, and few more incidents. i am working so hard on controlling my frustrations with the world and i am taking my meds and getting counseling - i hate living like this because i physically cant control it. And i was never like that prior to 06' my join date). so my question is what exactly does that quote from the va mean? does it mean that they recognize i was treated for depression during active duty but due to me missing the appointment, they need more information? And if i were to file a claim for depression and ptsd - and i were to receive the 80% I need in order to be rated 100%, how would the back pay work? Would the date go bak to my initial 2011 date? Or would they back pay me from the current date of filing? Sorry for the long post - thanks for the help. Also am i correct in saying that they would only be paying the difference between the 80% pay and the 100% pay right??
  4. Hey all, I am a retired US Army vet, did 26 years. So i receive retirement pay and a disablility check from VA (CRDP). I received a intitial 60% upon retirement. I apllied for a upgrade in all areas of my disablity in June 2014 (effective date). In May 2015 i was raised from 60% to 80%, an additional 500.00 a month started in June 2015. However, now its Jan 2016 and I have never seen any retroactive pay from June of 14. I have called anyone I could think of on the VA call list My answer at the best is you are on the list pending, pending, we are currently working on backpay for 2012. The owe me 6,000 plus. I dont know who else to contact. Any suggestions or do I just have to wait?

    [[Template core/front/global/prefix is throwing an error. This theme may be out of date. Run the support tool in the AdminCP to restore the default theme.]] Found "Competent" by the V.A but......

    I was proposed to be incompetent, so I presented all the evidence possible to convince the V.A. that although my injuries are extensive; I am competent. I waited for about 1 1/2 years for the V.A. to decide that I am in fact able to handle may own affairs and rate me "competent". According to the letter I am rated as competent and I shall continue to receive my full payment. However, I have not received any back payment or retroactive payment. When I called the Hot Line they told me that it will take between 10-45days to process. It is now 97days later and I still have not seen any action taken by the V.A.. As I continue to call them, they state that I do rate a large sum for my retroactive pay but, no one knows who to contact. I am at a loss. I don't know who to contact to get this moving or why it is taking them so long. Does anyone have experience with this.....? I really just want to pay the bills that stacked up while I could not work and had no way of paying..... I am not trying to build a savings account. Please anyone advise.
  6. Just received an increased percentage rate from 40% to 70% w/ spouse 1 child, due to a CUE claim. I am owed VA retroactive pay from Sep 2011-present. My questions are: What is the average time to receive retroactive pay from the VA AFTER DFAS has paid you their portion? I received $15K today from them. I already received the VA letter stating how much I was entitled to & how much I actually received for those years mentioned above. Any idea? Just want to know if I'll be waiting years for the back pay now. Thanks!
